This door latch, used in dishwashers, is located at the top of the door and locks the door shut when the dishwasher is working. If the door will not close or is damaged, changing the latch could be the solution. For this repair, remove all screws from the inner panel, then lift up the inner door panel and hold the door apart. Next, access the latch and pull wires from the switches. Refer to the manual provided by the manufacturer for further instructions and guidance. Remember to unplug the dishwasher from the power source or shut off the house circuit breaker before beginning this installation project.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Took the door of the dishwasher apart and the replaced the lever assembly. The lever assembly does not come with a door handle, so you have to remove the old door handle from the old lever assembly and install the door handle on the new lever assembly. Installing the handle on the lever assembly was the hardest part, the rest of the installation was easy.

All screws are on the inside of the dishwasher.Not a good place when the washer is closed and the handle breaks.Had to take a box cutter and remove some plastic in the handle area to be able to remove broken handle and open dish washer.Once open this repair is a piece of cake.2 wires and a hand full of screws.
I removed the screws on the interior door cover plate, pulled the cover plate back which exposes the latch switch. I then pulled the two electric connectors off the switch, swapped out new switch, reconnected electric and put the screws back in. Simple repair which took not more than 15 minutes and solved the problem.
The latch that opens the door to the diswasher was broken. It became difficult to open the dishwasher door.A quick search on the internet using the machine make and model took me to Partselect.com. Another quick seach of the exploded views of my dishwasher gave me the part number and a few more clicks had it on order.I recieved the part buy the end of the week. and had it installed within 15 to 20 minutes and I was up and running.What a deal!!! Thanks
Pried door open. First ordered the wrong part...latch assembly with no handle. Reordered proper part and installed it in no time. Ordered regular shipping (cheapest) and in both instances parts were there in two days via Fed Ex. Very quick getting the parts to me. Removed half of the screws on inside of door and used pliers to unhook assembly from the two power connectors and then popped new one in place by hand. All repairs should be this easy. I will use this company again for all appliance parts needed.
Opened the dorr, removed the inside panel = the most time consuming part - and then exchanged the handle assembly. Then replaced the panel. Snap!The hardest part was determining the part that I needed - the right part that did not involve repairing the/an assembly. Luckily I got the right one and two un-needed parts.Stuff happens.
Before starting the job, I looked at the information provided from others who had the same problem and had successfully installed the new part. The information provided was the reason I chose your company to purchase the part. THANK YOU!1. Turned off power2. Removed screws holding inside of door.3. Disconnected and removed old part.4. Removed dishwasher door handle and attached to new part.5. Connected new part and positioned it in the handle insert. (Be sure the small bars holding it together are firmly in place.)6. Reattached the door.Here is the problem: I did not realize I also needed a new door handle as I assumed it would be attached to the new door latch assembly. My door handle is cracked and some of the plastic has broken away. I will now have to order the new handle and pay the cost of shipping that would have certainly been less if I had ordered it in the first place.
After truning off the power, I removed the inside door panel by unscrewing the 11 screws. Next unplugged the latch assembly from the two electrical connections. Connected the two electrical connection to the new part and reinstalled the inside door panel. The only difficulty was that the first part I ordered did not have a handle as part of the assembly.
